I wanted to give surfing a go when I visited Sydney so I booked a lesson with these guys. I made the mistake of trying to get a jump forward by looking at YouTube and practicing a few moves, but only learnt bad habits.... The way Lets Go Surfing teach it makes so much more sense!

I had previously taken lessons in California to learn to surf with limited success. This time was completely different. The nature of the waves made them very small and easy to catch which is important for learning. They didn't have the large drop that can be intimidating, especially once you dip the front of your board once. The instructors were... More

G'day! Cali is great...but we think Bondi is magic! As you have experienced Bondi faces due south which is quite unique in among Sydney Beaches & this provides us with almost perfect learning conditions.....most of the time! We also schedule our lessons around the best tides so you can ride a more gentle wave & don't have to take the... More

These guys were great! They had us up on the boards within the first few tries!! They were really well organized, well prepared, and really great at teaching beginners how to surf. We could have spent all day there with them if we only had had the time!!

Always wanted to have a go at surfing & to do it at Bondi Beach is an added bonus. Price was reasonable & they take photos of you while you are having lessons which you can buy after. Instructor was brilliant, very patient, explained everything clearly & helped with any questions with no fuss. Great fun & definitely recommend it

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
